    Tower is now accepting pre-orders

    Placed my order for a 1/16 E-revo today. Just to get in the queue.

    Depends on your payment method. I put an e-revo on order and chose to pay via paypal and they took it out already. But I believe if you pay CC then they wont charge it until its ready to ship.


    But if you are a tower member you can get the $50 off coupon and the price is down to $289 for the e-revo. Got mine for $239 shipped, its gonna be a long month or so.

    I tryed that and it didnt work. I got the $30 off though. I had to re order it bc they said i forgot the discount. so anyone that ordered between 1pm and 7pm got ahead of me I ordered the slash though not the revo. Do you think ill still get one as soon as they come out?

    Sucks that the coupon code didnt work for everyone, they do that though. $30 off is still good.

    They have easy pay on tower. I never understood that though, I guess its just me but if I cant afford to pay for it up front I really shouldn't be buying it anyway.

    payment plan is nice sometimes if you dont have the money up front and you really want something. but sometimes you need to hold off just in case.

    It takes the edge off of $300. The same theory applies to buying a used car for $4000. That's an inexpensive car, but it still helps to have some payments in there. Shoot, some people even make no-interest payments on computers. It just makes it easier to buy the things you want.

    I'm In

    I ordered 1 Slash and 1 Revo, Slash $284-$50=$234 Revo $289-$50=$239 If your a member at Tower It makes sense ($$) to max your orders at $250-$300 to get your maximum discount. I ordered my seperately to get a total of $100 off instead of a total of $60.

    Best of all used Bill Me Later, won't have to pay till shipped I can save some money and pay for it when it ships

    Note: all prices and costs are in U.S. dollars.
    Stock Number Product Description Stock Status/Quantity Extended Price
    The following items will be placed on back order
    These items will ship to you when available
    LXWEP2** Traxxas 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD RTR Out of stock, back ordering 1 $284.99
    Order Summary

    Billing Type: Bill Me Later® In-Stock Subtotal:
    Standard Shipping:
    Total Current Charges: $ 0.00

    $ 0.00
    Note: Bill Me Later® will contact you for payment after your order ships.

    Is it to late to pre-order from TH? checked web site and says order pending under stock status, not sure if I should order one or wait until there in the stores, by the time TH sends out there pre orders might be a while before the next shipment,

    The discount doesn't show up until they charge you (i.e. when it is in stock and almost ready to ship).
